Malpractice Leads to Patient’s Death
Electronic Medical Record analysis uncovers records tampering

Our client, an attorney specializing in medical malpractice, hired Califorensics for our experience analyzing electronic medical records (EMR) and presenting accurate timelines of patient care. The attorney was dealing with a case involving a physician who was accused of medical malpractice after their patient’s condition worsened significantly under their follow-up care. The attorney requested a copy of the patient’s electronic medical record from the physician, who presented him with paper documents. The attorney noticed inconsistencies in the dates of the records, and suspected fabrication or tampering had occurred. Califorensics conducted EMR analysis to find out the truth.
